I made something! Almost.

Hello from Washington, DC where I am attending a conference. Here I am in the nation's capital in a big hotel where there is NO reception for your cellular telephone, even if it has the 3Gs. Crud.

Anyhou. Last year I was reading the weblogs on the internet, as I am prone to do, and I spotted something crafty that I immediately knew I had to make. As you know, I'm not so crafty, but this item really floats my boat.

Felted wool wreath from Pickles
So colorful and jolly!

So, I ordered up a 14-inch straw wreath, and 200 felted wool balls and I made this:


Hm. Mine looks different. Hard to place my finger on it... Oh, shiz man, I do not have enough balls. But the balls I've got look pretty good, right?

So, I tried to buy more balls from the purveyor of fine balls, but they are out of appropriate balls. Crap. They haven't told me when they will have more balls. My wreath may not be finished before Christmas! I may have a Lent wreath instead of Christmas wreath. How tacky.

Further to my wreathing/balls woes, I burned the shizzles out of my finger tip on the glue gun. Here's a bad photo of what's currently happening on my paw:


I've also highlighted, for your interest, the KING SIZE evidence of the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup massacre that just happened here in my hotel room.

Well, I tried. Some day my balls will come and I WILL finish it.

  2. Thanks Whitney! I suppose all pleasure should come with a little sacrifice or hardship - it makes us appreciate it even more!
